Convenient location, parking ok. Local producers well-represented, but it's the presence of the folks from around the lake in Michigan that really make this special.

The quality of the fruits and vegetables for sale is uniformly high. There are also beautiful flowers, delicious baked goods and prepared foods, and various items like oils, vinegars, and honey.

Plenty of vendors with organic, local produce. You can get your knives sharpened, have a crepe, and walk away with plenty of food for your upcoming week. Check it out.
